In response to the critical issues of Peak Oil and Global Warming, we have been holding informal community meetings in our hometown of Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Our emerging intent is to vision a clear path of action toward sustainable community. In our discussions, we recognize that there is a wealth of information and inspiration here on the internet ~ information that helps shape our understanding and empowers our resolve toward action ~ inspiration that nourishes our hope for a graceful future.

A Crack in the Asphalt is simply a compilation of links to information about Sustainability with a special emphasis on Community and Urban Greening. (Please note that descriptive paragraphs following each link originate from the cited website unless otherwise noted.) From time to time, we will also post notices of upcoming events that may be of local, national or global interest.

For a permanent link to any particular post, click on the posting time found in the signature line at the bottom of each post.

We welcome your feedback and any suggestions for new links and/or changes to existing links. Please write to: greensprouts@cogeco.ca . You are also happily invited to post comments in usual blogger fashion.

Thank you for your interest :)

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:


If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
